MICHIGAN ARTISTS' EXHIBITION 



The Annual Exhibition for Michi- 
gan Artists, under the joint auspices 
of the Scarab Club and the Museum, 
opened Wednesday evening, De- 
cember first, with a most enthusiastic 
and well attended reception and 
opening view, showing that Detroit 
people are becoming year by year 
more appreciative of the efforts of 
the local artists. The refreshments 
provided by the hostesses and the 
incidental music furnished by the 
McDowell Trio through the cour- 
tesy of the Chamber Music Society, 
added to the intimacy and pleasure 
of the occasion. 

That the exhibitors' interest in 
the exhibition ran high was evi- 
denced by the fact that almost six 
hundred works were submitted, out 
of which one hundred and thirty- 
four paintings and nine pieces of 
sculpture were accepted. The Jury 
of Selection and Award consisted of 
George W. Eggers, Director of the 
Art Institute of Chicago, George W. 
Stevens, Director of the Toledo 
Museum of Art, and Alexis J. 
Fournier, a landscape painter. 

The Scarab Club Gold Medal was 
awarded by the jury to Mathias J. 
Alten for his group of three pictures.

Honore for his painting, "The Fruit 
Harvester," the Frank Scott Clark 
Prize to Arthur Vershaeve for his 
painting, "The Flemish Woman" 
the City Art and Design Committee 
of the Twentieth Century Club 
Prize to Alfred Hutty for his

The jury also awarded Honorable 
Mention to Samuel Cashwan for his 
group of sculpture, Ivan Swift for 
his group of paintings, Roman 
Kryzanowsky for his group of 
paintings, and Arthur Marschner 
for his painting, "Golden Trees." 

The Board of Trustees of the 
Detroit Museum of Art Founders' 
Society, supplementing the awards 
of the jury, awarded the Detroit 
Museum of Art Founders' Society 
First Prize to Roman Kryzanowsky 
for his still life, "The Green Jar"
